Even More Footage From Jerry Lewis’ Holocaust Clown Movie, The Day The Clown Cried

Last year’s most successful non-Star Wars story at Bleeding Cool revolved around footage from Jerry Lewis‘ long-lost holocaust movie The Day the Clown Cried. I think people find it very hard to believe this film exists.

Why? Well, this film dances on thin ice. Here’s how I described it before:

the story of a clown in a Nazi concentration camp and is most notorious for the last scene of its screenplay, and presumably of the film as shot.

At risk of spoiling a movie you will most likely never, ever get to see, I can tell you that the climax takes place in a gas chamber, with the clown going in to face his death with a group of scared children, trying to make them laugh in order take away their fear. It ends with them all locked in, the kids laughing as the clown juggles stale bread, just about holding it together.

Today, more footage from the film has surfaced and my sometime colleague Craig Skinner has just alerted me to the link.

And also, Lewis in discussion about the film back in 1972. This is not the line he took about the film in more recent years.
